Even though most wedding days are typically the same (get ready, get married, celebrate!), every wedding is unique in so many ways, and one of the reasons I love photographing them is the EMOTION that I see! Everyone is emotional on a wedding day. There’s so much joy, so much deep happiness, and while each person displays it differently, I love that I get to capture the expressions of a bride and groom on one of the happiest days of their lives. This isn’t cheesy or silly. It’s raw and beautiful, and I love it so much.
One of THE most emotional parts of a wedding day is the first look, or when a bride and groom first see each other as the bride walks down the aisle! Here are just a few of my favorite “first look” moments that I grabbed from weddings we’ve shot!
(See that second to last photo? That’s a picture of the groom’s mom, overjoyed and overcome because of how happy she is for her son. She’s watching him as he watches his bride, coming down the aisle. So so beautiful.)
